RDN to conduct upgrades at Ravensong pool

$600,000 budgeted for the work

The Regional District of Nanaimo will perform mechanical upgrades at the Ravensong Aquatic Centre next year.

The RDN is currently seeking tenders from qualified and experienced contractors for the job, that will take place during the pool’s four-week maintenance shutdown in August.

The scope of the work will include provisions of new, complete, operational and tested mechanical systems for heating, ventilation, air conditioning, controls, plumbing and fire protection systems.

The project was approved by the RDN board and it has budgeted around $600,000 for the work.

Manager of recreation Dean Banman said how long the pool will be closed is uncertain at this point but they are planning to add any time required to the regular annual shutdown.
